How Do You Protect the Paper Luggage Tags?

We have visited the missing luggage area of a ship on embarkation day and seen many pieces of luggage with torn off tags. What do you do to protect yours?

Yep, just got my in and they are ready to go.

I protected my luggage tags with some clear heavy plastic luggage tag protectors I found on Some I found had a separate loop to attach and others I found in a travel store were made in china and were cheap. I really like these because they are one-piece. I put my paper luggage tags that I printed from the cruise website into these and looped them around the handles on our bags. They are very durable and the price was much lower than others. I couldn't be happier. Here is a direct link.

Thanks for all the tips 😊

I laminated our groups and then when we get to the ship they will staple them on!

Just bought eight on-line (not Amazon - are we allowed to say the eB__ name?)

The rainproof, heavy duty plastic, braided wire style discussed here. Folks here and elsewhere like them. Plus I had a few eB__ buckaroos to use or lose.

Clear packing tape works amazingly! And it is water proof. No need to fix whats not

I agree with DanyInc, there is nothing wrong with the packing tape.

However, getting 8 of the plastic tags for only about $10, and them being reusable, it comes out cheaper than getting a new roll of tape every cruise.

I agree

I bought clear plastic covers from Serendipity online a few years ago and they have been great!

We use tag holders.
